Waking up is a very good start to the day and my plan is to fully enjoy each and every one.

  • Replied in further clue
    I think you need to go southeast New Day.
  • A museum and Bernado both come to mind here Hans - and a sad recent history also.
  • Well done! Yes Hans, all correct and with full bonus points for the names. Now admirably restored and the home of the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra: https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/checkpoin ...
  • Replied in Another clue
    We are in the second largest city on a landmass 'downunder'.
  • Replied in More clues
    Situated on a notable royal street intersection in this old university city (one I'm sure our friend Brett would feel at home in), the building went under several names during the period it was a ...

    From religious beginnings it headed on a mission darkly downwards, besmirching the Vatican's name on the way, and eventually making monkeys out of its visitors. After a period of quiet desolation, ...
  • What and where? Not sure how easy this might be. Bonus points for supplying its main five historical names.
  • Barry, I think we might be at St Catherine's College (designed by the Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen) in Manor Road, Oxford, England. cf. https://www.agefotostock.com/age/en/Stock-Images/college-a ...

    That narrows it down somewhat Brian - the name of a British Viscount now comes to mind.
  • Replied in FREE TURN
    A FREE TURN is currently on offer - be the first to post a new challenge.
  • Barry, I think we are at the Carmel Highlands lookout on the Cabrillo Highway, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. Nice challenging challenge! https://www.google.com/maps/@36.5016596,-121.9382242,3a,49. ...

    Are we in a shallow sea (maybe suitable for catamarans?) and cruising past the southern tip of a peninsula?
  • Replied in clue
    Ah, that throws more light on the town Hans. :-)

    Found the ferry but it took a bit longer to find where she was parked Brian. I think you were at the Kirkwall Orkney Ferry Terminal wharf on the Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland. https://www.goog ...
  • You went well north then, laddie?
  • Well done! Yes Rakino Island, one of the few I've not landed on in the Hauraki Gulf. Rakino: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rakino_Island Sanfords: https://www.sanford.co.nz/about-sanford/history/ O ...

    Seems to be harder than I thought it would be. Our island is obviously to the south of Kawau island and, depending on wind direction, an AC50 might take between 30 minutes and an hour to sail down ...
  • Right knight Brian! But not Kawau - as stated earlier, this dwelling was built on a bay to the north. The 'fishy' reference relates to the second owners business which, over 150 years, grew to be ...
  • Sorry Barry, not Norfolk - your first guess was your closest so far.
  • Our island's 'fishy bloke' was the second owner. The first owner was a knight who held prominent positions on both sides of the 'ditch'. He started to build a house on our island, then changed his ...
